getting started with Vim
Using Vim can be daunting and even if you do decide to give it a try, it’s easy to give up quickly because the learning curve is so steep. So, what is the best way to learn Vim and stick with it? A good place to start is Vim’s own tutorial, launched with vimtutor. The tutorial will teach you everything you need to know to use Vim as an all-purpose editor, but of course can’t cover everything! The tutorial is designed to take 25-30 minutes to complete. After you’ve mastered the tutorial, start using Vim in anger, without any plug-ins. You can use the .vimrc file to configure theming, syntax highlighting and other features to suit your preferences. After running like this for a period of time, you’ll be ready to start dipping your toe in the water when it comes to plug-ins. Vim 8 has native plug-in package loading, but the process is still, of course, rather basic. Avoid getting too carried away initially, just install interesting looking packages individually. You’ll have Vim tuned to your needs in no time!
